Q: How Much CBD Should I Take and How Often?
Q: What is CBD?
A: CBD stands for cannabidiol, which is an extract found from a cannabis plant. CBD is one of over 100 Phytocannabinoids (chemical compounds) found in the Cannabis Hemp plant. CBD makes up for over 40% of the plant’s extract. Other Cannabinoids include THC (tetrahydrocannabinol), THCA (tetrahydrocannabinolic acid), CBDA (cannabidiolic acid), CBN (cannabinol), CBG (cannabigerol), CBC (cannabichromene) and CBL (cannabicyclol). CBD is normally extracted from the “Hemp” plant (a term used to classify varieties of Cannabis that contain 0.3% or less THC content (by dry weight)).
Q: What is THC?
A: THC stands for tetrahydrocannabinol which has the chemical make-up C₂₁H₃₀O₂THC. This is the main compound which is found in marijuana plants. This chemical is what gives users "high effects" from its psychoactive properties. CBD products must contain less than 0.2% THC to be legal according to UK law.
Q: Does CBD contain THC?
A: CBD oil can contain THC depending on how it is made. Raw CBD oil is an isolate which means that it won't have any trace amounts of cannabis compounds such as THC. CBD oil however is extracted from hemp which may have small trace amounts. If you are looking to avoid THC, we have numerous products which contain no THC found.

Q: Is all CBD the same?
A: There are over 113 identified cannabinoids — with CBD and THC being the most thoroughly researched. CBD comes in 3 main forms: Full Spectrum, Broad Spectrum and Isolate.
Full-spectrum CBD is made with an extract that contains all or nearly all of the compounds naturally present in the cannabis plant. This obviously includes CBD, as well as other cannabinoids, terpenes, flavonoids, and much more.
Isolate is the purest form of this compound and only contains only CBD.
Broad Spectrum CBD (often called “distillate”) contains similar cannabinoids to full-spectrum but with little to no THC contents.
Q: Why does the price of CBD vary so much?
A: You may see third party product site selling CBD for cheap. The answer was revealed recently when the Cannabis Trades Association (CTAUK) bought 6 different CBD Oils from eBay and had them laboratory tested. 4 of them had nearly zero CBD and the other 2 had less than half of the stated amount.
